I find it very amusing that ESPN can have two articles back to back about Isiah Thomas' offseason as Knicks' GM with such differing opinions ... Somebody already pointed out Chad Ford's praise for Isiah, but then Frank Hughes takes it in a completely different direction :

    That would be Isiah Thomas revamping the New York Knicks.


It'll be interesting to see which one winds up being correct on the matter ...

It's called the Quart of Blood Technique...you do that, a quart of blood comes out of a man's body.

All this story scenario needs is Jerry West playing the guy who calls bullshit on him with Joe Dumars punctuating everything with "YEAH" :D

Seeing as how Isiah has utterly failed at everything he's ever done in his post-playing career, my money is on Hughes' position.

And now that Isiah is apparently using most if the Knicks MLE on Vin Baker(which puts an end to any chance Dampier signs there for the MLE), Hughes' opinion is on the money.
